Have you been itching after eating Easter candy?

It’s called the Easter Rash and it’s linked to kids having too much of a favorite Easter treat.

Within two days of Easter, some children develop severe skin rashes.

After binging on chocolate they experience dermatitis. The journal pediatric dermatology explains, some children are allergic to nickel and develop rashes when they come in contact with it.

Certain foods like peanuts, chocolate and oats contain a significant amount of nickel.
